Alapin - Bird - Colle // The Players
Compiled by fredthebear

These are the worthwhile collected games of each particular player, not necessarily the opening itself.

Site under construction by Fredthebear.

Why yes, three it is.

Does this remind you of Athos, Porthos and Aramis, or Moe, Larry, and Curly? Maybe Alnitak, Mintaka, and Alnilam, or TV brothers Mike, Robbie, and Chip?

Some might remember Shelley Duvall, Sissy Spacek and Janice Rule, or farther back the Andrews Sisters. There was Peter, Paul & Mary; Crosby, Stills & Nash; the Supremes; Run DMC; the Police; Green Day; Beastie Boys; Nirvana; TLC; Dixie Chicks; ZZ Top; Rush; the Pointer Sisters; Emerson, Lake & Palmer; Tony Orlando and Dawn (have a listen: ); and brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb - the Bee Gees ! ! ! (Yeah, FTB does feel like Harry at the moment.)

The tragic plane crash of 1959 was "The Day the Music Died": Wikipedia article: The Day the Music Died We lost Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. Richardson (The Big Bopper). Singer/song writer Don McLean sings about it here:

Let's pick up the pace. How about the record setting golden trio of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson? Farther back was Chris Mullin, Mitch Richmond, and Tim Hardaway. Most Left Coast fans were probably thinking of the Hall of Famers Jerry West, Elgin Baylor and Wilt Chamberlain, or these '80's Lakers Kareem Abdul-Jabaar, Jamaal Wilkes, and Ervin Magic Johnson.

Back East, there was Ron Francis, Jaromir Jagr, and Mario Lemieux as well as Mike Bossy, Clark Gillies, and Brian Trottier. Maybe Johnny Bucyk, Phil Esposito, and Bobby Orr yet undoubtedly Paul Coffey, Mark Messier, and Wayne Gretzky.

Time remembers darker days, the meetings of the Allied "Big Three"— Franklin D. Roosevelt/Harry Truman, Joseph Stalin, and Winston Churchill. Before them Emanual Lasker, Jose R. Capablanca, and Alexander Alekhine ruled the 64 squares. Today, it's AOC's three branches of American government that count:

That's nothing like the Triple Crown of American horse racing: Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes.

Skyward, there will always be a place in history for Neil Armstrong, Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin, and Michael Collins. Greek mythology tells of Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. Ah, but it's the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who reign supreme. See Matthew 28:19.

Of course <whiteshark> being a whiteshark could be thinking of Brody, Quint, and Hooper singing on the boat...

slaw1998: In my spine there sends a shiver
When a player sends his pieces up the river
Into loose en prise encapture, enrapture,
Does it to my heart receive it well
Yet other players bring me down
Their defense sends my attack the other way around And Tal and others would be quite displeased
Like I, to have the attack no hope of being released

So I'll go on shedding pieces
With combos, like a magic stall,
And hope that some day
I can beat them all.
